When a family is displaced or forced to flee their country, it has a particularly devastating impact on the children. The youngest are left confused and frightened by their experiences and the oldest are forced to grow up much too fast. As such, it is increasingly important to provide psychosocial support to children who may have internalised these difficulties and who may be suffering as a result.

Al Madad Foundation's tailored Art Therapy programmes work to address the emotional scars inflicted by what children have seen and experienced, allowing them to express what they will not, or simply don’t have the words, to say.  

This scheme also includes Teacher Training in assessment and referral, classroom management and positive discipline skills, Self-Development and Self-Care workshops for teachers and parents, as well as Parenting Sessions tackling sensitive topics such as bullying, developmental needs, building strong parent-child bond, sexual abuse, war trauma and gender-based violence.
